Editing 4k Video Faster Than An iPad Pro On My Mobile!
For example, with my iPad pro 2018, this is the twelve point: nine inch version with 256 gigabytes of storage, an expensive machine with a luma fusion. You can edit video on the go quite easily fast and fluid, but I was surprised to learn that encoding times are actually faster on my samsung galaxy s, 10 plus. So the reason behind this video isn't to add more fuel to the fire of iOS vs., Android or iPad, always now, with the beta that I'm currently running beta 6 vs. Android no I'm, not worried about any of that it's just to keep things simple. So when I went to Mobile World Congress at the beginning of this year, I took my sony a6300 along with me. Some lenses, external mics tripod heavy windows team laptop to edit, and i had to lug that around for a week and it became quite bothersome, and I saw also others around huge YouTube channels. Even Chinese television using just an iPhone 10 – and I thought well something's, going on here about keeping things very simple and let's face it at these Expos. At these events, lighting is not like it is now controlled, so I have to 5000k studio lights on here at the moment and his events you're getting blue light coming through you're, getting red light from logos. You'Ve got all this mixed light everywhere and initial first impressions and hands on videos to me, even though it's not that professional shooting on a mobile phone is still fine, the quality you can get from that and most people gon na be happy we'll.
Just a quick look edit, a quick first impressions and I'll show you this video, my set up well I'm gon na take to IFA Berlin the week that I'm going and September, and just how simple and easy it really is. Okay, so it's not in the shot! Here my samsung galaxy s, tm is being used to film this and you can see there's my main camera. They use for YouTube there. So you know that I'm, not filming on that. So how did I get that fluid shot? Just then that's, because I'm using my man photo fluid tripod with a mobile mount, but when I go to events taking a more portable travel tripod, which is a lot smaller lightweight, actually fits in a backpack so for audio. I use this right here. This is a lav mic here from rode, so this video is not sponsored by sony road highway. Anyone I don't do sponsored videos it's, just an informative video just to let you know and there's no affiliate links in the description either. Okay, so I do have a highway P, 30 Pro and the reason I'm not going to use this phone is because let's face it. Let'S be honest here, video quality, it takes fantastic photos. Video quality on this phone is kind of bad it's. Terrible really because you get a lot of dropped frames and stutter when panning and that's, why? I will probably not use this. It also doesn't have a 3.
5 millimeter headphone jack, but yeah course you can use an adapter and then it does work now why? I have right here an old phone. This is my s7 edge, sorry nan edge and it's a it's, a great phone. I like my galaxy, assuming because it still has manual mode with video and it's. Something samsung has not brought back. They dropped it when they moved over to one UI and that really annoyed me. So we've got no manual video modes at the moment, so focus. If I tap the screen on my s10, I can lock the focus and it doesn't lock the exposure either, which isn't very professional, to have the exposure kind of go all over the place. There'S a way around that to use an application called open camera, which I highly recommend, then you get full manual controls so before when you saw me talking in front of the camera. I was using this right here. This is my Road wire let's go set up, and I used that when I talk around the camera most times. In fact, all the time now I'm using this right here and I think it's quite good, because it's wireless so using an adapter here. So you need TR s 2, TT e, iris or the other way around. I think it is so I can use this with my mobile phone, so I plug this straight into the s10, and that gives me good audio if I'm going to speak in front of the camera, there's no cables in between, because it's all Wireless.
This actually has a built in microphone here. You can see right at the top, so just bring that up to the camera. You can see, there is the mic and it doesn't support plug in external mics as well. If you wanted to use that so just plug there, now the road external mic – 3.5 Manami de – and this is again using the stock camera application with Samsung – and you can hear the audio quality – has probably changed a little bit before. I was using this right here, which is a direction or plug in mic, which uses 3.5 millimeter headphone jack and it's got currently what they call the dead cat on there. I hate that name, but it's, a wind filter, okay, so this is very handy. If you got a lot of wind around, this thing just blocks out all the wind and it also acts as a pop filter too, as well. So, if you're speaking into the mic at these events, its directional it's just going to get your voice, whereas a lav mic can sometimes pick up a little bit of other voices around you so that's. Another mic that I will use. This thing comes right off. If I can get it off there, you go and you can see there's the mic itself. So if you don't need the when filter on it, then you just use this by itself. So recently I swapped my 11 inch version for the 12 point.
9 inch version of the iPad pro I've been using luma fusion, which is fantastic for video editing. But then I thought well what about the S 10, plus using Samsung decks as an alternative and using either a dope rush or PowerDirector, which is from cinema link power directors? Also another app you can use for editing now this setup. This is fantastic, it's, very fast. The encoding time with the iPad pro for 4k, that I'm gon na always be using 4k, is about a 1 to 1 ratio. So 1 minute of footage takes about one minute to encode, which is really fast, it's. Very quick and the good thing about you, luma fusion, I won't, get into lots of details with this – is that you can color grade. You can do a lot of things so it's almost like a fully featured video editor. It is very good, so I have switched over now to my samsung galaxy s7, an old phone, but for me it's still a good phone in the 4k video quality is good because you still got the pro mode but I'm, not actually using it at the moment. So then, power director here I've got one minute of footage that I'm gon na export. You can see right here. The exact same 1. Minute of footage is also on my iPad pro. This is the 2018 model. 12 point 9 inches, so it is 50 megabits per second both of the files.
Both the files are 30 frames per second, as well so I'm going to go now to export both of these files to the internal storage and the sitting I'm going to use with PowerDirector. This is the 4k highest preset bitrate quality, which should be about 15. Me what's per second, and then I'll do the same here with the iPad pro so it's bought those two photos, that is the internal storage, and it is 4k 30 frames per second 50 megabits per second. So with my IP 30 Pro here with its timer, I will time this now. So hopefully I can do this at the same time, so just to get a an estimate here hit produce at the same time and quickly, of course, the timer. So this is what really surprised me is the end results of this. The fact that an s10 with a Snapdragon 805 can export 4k faster than an iPad pro okay. So there we go. The s10 plus has finished. That was at 42 seconds and the iPad is still going to almost done it's just about to come up to the minute mark. So one minute of footage on the iPad will take about one minute to encode, whereas it's about 42 seconds on the S team. Okay, there we go, it has done that was at just over a minute there, and there was that timer so 43 seconds. You can see right here, 43 seconds with the Samsung Galaxy S, 10 plus that's a lot faster than I thought it was going to be because we'd have a look at synthetic benchmarks.
Of course the iPad absolutely kills the s10 plus in performance alright. So there we go, you can see that it's all possible from the mobile phone to shoot and edit video and even encode faster than an iPad pro. I think a lot of us fall into that trap. We just assume that, because synthetic benchmarks on the iPad pro just be anything out there in Android, okay on the Android ecosystem, it is a lot faster, but you, as you've seen there, that it has actually took quite a good job of editing, video and it's fast. In fact, all this video you're looking at now has been edited on PowerDirector. I could have done it on a rush there as well that's, not to mean that, of course, this is a bad setup for mobile video, editing, it's. What I got it for and lumo fusion is a basic, fully fledged video editing app, and it is really quite good for that. But you can do some color coding and other little bits and pieces as well with say a dough brush and PowerDirector so sit up. You can just use your mobile phone, you don't even need to have the deck setup that I have you don't need to go for the external monitor, Bluetooth, keyboard and mouse. You can just do it all from your phone if you're one of those people, but I find that just using a phone so small and doing it all like that, even though it is optimized for finger use for your scrubbing ahead and cutting and editing and things Like that, I just find it to be a little bit too small and annoying.
So thank you so much for watching this video, because it's just a little test of mine – and I will be going with this setup in IFA Berlin. Oh yes, I will say it again that of course, it's not super professional, but I want to make things easy for me this time around. I don't want to spend a week lugging around, as mentioned at the start of the video, the camera, the big tripod I'm. Taking a smaller tripod and my huge heavy, powerful Windows, 10 laptop is not needed at least not anymore, so if you're also starting out in YouTube. Something like this is idea or just work on. Perhaps maybe your audio audio use an external recorder, you don't have to use your phone for recording audio as well.
